http://www.bbc.co.uk/sport/boxing/36970816 Fury beat Ukrainian Wladimir Klitschko to win the WBA and WBO heavyweight titles in November. Ukad said its statement was in response to comments from Tyson Fury and his team. A spokeswoman said: "UK Anti-Doping can confirm that both boxers were charged on 24 June, 2016 with presence of a prohibited substance." Fury announced on 24 June that he was pulling out of a planned Klitschko rematch, scheduled for 9 July, saying he had injured his ankle in training. The charges will be considered at a hearing of the independent National Anti-Doping Panel on a date to be confirmed. On Tuesday, Fury's legal team said proceedings had been issued in the High Court. "The two boxers strenuously deny taking any performance-enhancing drugs," said lawyer Lewis Power. "However, during the last five weeks leaks about these charges have appeared in the press and both boxers have been the targets of continual abusive language on Twitter."
